Discovery Education is gearing up for three full days at CAST that will inspire the way you teach science in Texas! We hope you’ll join us for unique sessions, inspiring stories, practical strategies, and hands-on experiences with our phenomenal science solutions, all available through our award-winning K-12 learning platform and our Texas Science science package! Built to the TEKS, our K-12 digital science package combines the flexibility and ease of an all-new supplemental program, Science for Texas, with the depth and rigor of the state-approved core Science Techbook, to inspire real-world inquiry and support instruction.
Each day, we’re raffling five limited-edition Discovery Education lab coats. Stop by booth #129 and scan your badge for a chance to win! At the end of each exhibit day, we’ll randomly select five winners and contact you to receive your prize.
One of the best ways to engage students in meaningful scientific investigations is through the use of real-world phenomena that can stimulate them to develop their own questions about the world. In this session, we will focus on what it really means for students to be proficient in the science and engineering practice of asking questions and what types of phenomena are most effective and efficient in supporting students in asking scientific questions.
Friday, November 119:30 AM – 10:30 AM CT
Location: Grand Ballroom D
In this session we will explore powerful instructional strategies to transform your ordinary anchor phenomena into the extraordinary. Take your instruction to the next level with student-centered, inquiry-based learning opportunities that will activate background knowledge in the first 30 seconds of your lesson.
